The Brocca Bombo by Clelia Valentino

The Brocca Bombo by Clelia Valentino

In the days when water was scarce and needed to be transported from villages to the countryside, farmers used a traditional, rural earthenware jug know as a bummulo made by master potters to transport, store, and deliver water. Designer Clelia Valentino of Imperfetto Siciliano has created a modern day interpretation called the Brocca Bombo jug to bring the same functional object to your home. The drop-shaped ceramic jug is handcrafted in the Caltagirone district of Sicily, Italy and can hold up to 3 1/2 liters of water that can be poured from the top or side openings. Hand-painted pastel color-blocking gives the jug a charming look.
